My girlfriend and I are members of the Central Connecticut chapter of NEMBA (New England Mountain Biking Association). When I saw how much my local trails improved back in 2015 fro their work, I wanted to become a part of the organization and give back by helping build more trails. After helping build trails, I…
I’m commenting on the comments about respecting horse riders. I remember hearing from someone that horses also get spooked by bikes because of the hubs, especially if they are loud. Hub sounds mimic a rattlesnake rattle and horses might have a natural fear of that sound genetically.
I’ll have to vote for Trance music. No it’s not techno, and even bought many would place it into the “EDM” category, Trance was around way before that acronym.
I can tell you the most likely reason why Connecticut’s top trails changed. In my opinion, people purposely voted down Rockland Preserve to get it down on the list. Reasons: maybe people aren’t following TrailHUB and riding when they aren’t supposed to, or to relieve congestion. Rockland is the best singletrack system in the state…

updated River Highlands State Park / Cromwell Creek conditions to Good
 
 
Love the fact that the 5010 can take tires up to 2.8 inches, if you so desired. But to me, 2.6 is the perfect compromise. And a fox dpx2 shock now, sign me up! But these bikes are $$$, especially after the s build. I'm pleased they added a reserve wheel option on the s…

replied to What was your first mountain bike?
 
I don't think I would even count my first mountain bike as a REAL mountain bike (Huffy whocareswhatmodelitwas). I consider my first bike as the one I currently ride, a 2013 Trek...

started a topic: Sram vs Shimano...Can Shimano keep up?
 
<p style="text-align: center;">I've noticed most top bike brands these days have sram eagle xo1 or xx components on their top models. Very few brands are using shimano xt or xtr on their...

replied to Your best crash story
 
Yesturday I installed my race face chester pedals for the first time on my bike (I used them a week prior in a Santa Cruz demo event in MA). I knew they...

A truly underrated trail system, River Highlands (aka Cromwell Creek) is a unique place to ride. Nestled along the Connecticut...
